and new york. not necessarily new york city getting as hard-hit with this storm. several inches expected. what's fastcinating when talkin about a nor'easter system, as it develops off the coast, depending where the low pressure is centered, that will determine how much snow cities like boston and providence get. but the latest computer modelling are saying we could see six inches or more for the boston area. that's why a winter storm warning is now in place. so the snow will begin later on today and continue through the night, and it may be something you have to plow or shovel out by the time we get to tomorrow morning. we'll be watching this very closely. you can see that the winter weather advisory is a little less for the cape, because you have that ocean moisture and ocean temperatures a little bit milder and that influences whether you get snow or rain. again, this looks like a powerful storm. here's the computer model showing we could see over a foot of snow in parts of massachusetts and into rhode island. it's something to monitor closely. this is very common for new england, depe

pressure gets to the coastline, massachusetts, including the city of boston, could see substantial snow throughout today and tonight. let's break it down. you see the low sliding off the coast. getting energy if the west. it becomes intense and stays to the south of new england. now with that flow, we're getting the winds coming from the north, picking up the moisture from the atlantic. that's why eastern massachusetts, if you can see the brighter white here, indicates a little bit more intense snowfall. it is still something we're monitoring because the as the low slides east or west, that would impacts how much rain versus how much snow you get in new england. whether you're in new england or not, you'll face some travel troubles today. we have airport delays forecast for the northeast, the mid-atlantic, the midwest. and even down here in the south, we had delays in charlotte this morning. and on the west coast, we could see delays, low clouds and rain even in los angeles. busy travel weekend. lots of weather coast to coast that will impact millions of people. >> no escaping it, huh?

on to the tracks. it's the second subway murder this month in new york city. >> commissioner, would you consider putting more police on platforms in the wake of what's happened in month? >> no, we think that we are properly deployed in the transit system. >> so not something you'd consider at this point? >> you show me any place in this world where 5 1/2 million people get together that has the virtually zero crime rate that we do. >> now, take a look at your screen here because police are looking for this woman. they say she's a heavy set woman in her 20s. and she was caught by security cameras fleeing the scene after the attack. >>> as people across the u.s. try to dig out from a recent snowstorm, are you one of them? you know forecasters are calling for another round this weekend. an additional 2 to 4 inches of snow, in fact, forecast from southern illinois to new jersey, a pretty wide swath there. the storm has brought heavy rains, tornadoes, which we don't hear a lot of this time of year and high winds to several areas of the country and it's already being blamed for ten deaths. >>> regrett
